Just random ramblings

Been decorating for Christmas, realizing I have WAY too much stuff so I asked myself on each thing "do I really love this and if I do, do I have a perfect spot for it?" if no was said just once for that question it went into the donation bag.  I filled the bag!  I am almost done with the decorating, just need to go to the store, again, for replacement lights.  And then we can go and get our tree.  I'm wanting a tree similar to the one we had last year, it was a little shorter and much easier to decorate.  And this year I want to put it in an old metal mop bucket I found at a yard sale.  We'll see how it goes.

My boys turned 13 and 5 years old yesterday and the day before.  I'm in a little bit of shock that I have an official teenager and my youngest is 5.  It's a bit scary, but I like it.  Being a mother is certainly an adventure.

I finally got some of our family photos framed.  I found this music stand, although I didn't realize it was a music stand when I found it also at the same yard sale where I found the mop bucket.  I thought it would make a great picture frame and it does.

And the stockings were hung... Although they belong to Seiyon, Mom, Avrie, Victoria and Kendall.

 Need to search the internet for ideas on what I want to do with this little thing. Oh how I love pinterest. I'll take an after picture when it is all finished.

I'm in love with that music stand frame Julie! What a great find. And what a great purpose you found for it.
